Student360 is fast approaching, on Friday, January 31 at Target Northern Campus in Brooklyn Park, Minnesota. All of us at Secure360 and UMSA are excited to show you what we’ve been working on, and why we’ve built this conference to have its best year yet. But there are a few things you should know before the big day! Use this as your guide to make sure you’re prepared for what we’ve got in store for you at Student360 2020.
Like any conference, there’s a dress code
Dressing to impress is always paramount to getting the most out of your experience. At Student360, you’ll be making first impressions with potential employers, colleagues and thought leaders in the security industry, so note the dress code for this event is business casual.
What to bring to Student360
You’ll be given a notebook and pen to take notes with, but you may bring either a laptop or tablet if you prefer typing out notes. Lunch and snacks will be provided to you, so there’s no need to bring in food. Also, don’t forget to bring plenty of copies of your resume, printed on resume paper (not just printer paper). You’ll be meeting people who want to see who you are as a potential candidate – your resume should reflect that.

Free parking is available for students attending Student360 at Target Northern Campus.
